On this occasion, the lawyer of Fawad Chaudhry said that my client was not brought to the court, he was taken from the limits of Lahore, it has been played on all TV channels, the order of the court has been violated.
The lawyer further said that it is unfortunate that despite the court’s order, the hostage was not produced. If there was a court’s order, why did he leave for Islamabad? This limit has been crossed, malice is evident in the case.
He added that a speech was given, permission was immediately taken and a case was registered, giving the impression that Fawad Chaudhry had rebelled.
In front of the court, Additional Advocate General Punjab Jawad Yaqub said that a case was registered against Fawad Chaudhry in Kohsar police station.

The lawyer of the Punjab government said on this occasion that the Islamabad police were present everywhere, we had no bad intentions, the lawyers of Fawad Chaudhry are calling the detention illegal.
He said that he has not yet told the court that the detention is legal, he should have told the court the truth.
Earlier, at the beginning of the hearing, Fawad Chaudhry’s lawyer told the court that we have just found out that Fawad Chaudhry has left Islamabad.
On which Justice Tariq Saleem Sheikh said that if they have gone to Islamabad, then call them back from there.
The public prosecutor told the court that everyone has been spoken to, but Fawad Chaudhry is not with the Punjab Police.
